A great stop for hand-crafted artisanal coffee and small breakfast options. As recommended by Travel Channel host, Anthony Bourdain.
This cafe is like second home to the techies hammering away at nearby co-working spaces, such as Hub SoMa. Come prepared to wait for your coffee--and strike up a conversation.
The mint tea here is off the chain good. Make sure you stir it though!
If you don't like the New Orleans Iced Coffee, I'm fairly sure you're a cylon.
Check out the soy hot chocolate!
This itty bitty kiosk always has a line of excited patrons in front of it, patiently waiting for their creamy lattes or New Orleans iced coffees. It's worth the wait.
Try the Gibraltar, #28 on 7x7’s San Francisco list of 100 Things to Try Before You Die. #vday
Try the New Orleans Iced Coffee. I highly recommend it.
if you like blue bottle then you will like sightglass too. it is better and superior
Does 'never drink other coffee' count as a tip?
Best espresso in San Francisco.
Sit at the counter with the glass pane to the left of register and watch the coffee brew.It's hypnotizing.
they must have sprinkled crack in my New Orleans Iced Coffee.
ask about the "money hose."
...have a plain cup of Drip Coffee, being the purist that you are! If not then opt for the New Orleans Style Iced Coffee, which is a very refreshing...
Arguably the best gourmet coffee in San Francisco and/or the world. There's always a line but oh so worth it. If it's too busy, you can take the coffee and stroll around Mint Plaza.
Sometimes I look at all that glassware and equipment and wonder if they turn this place into a meth lab at night.
Can't make up your mind what to get? Do what the Canadians do, and order BOTH an iced coffee and a latte.
Try the Gibraltar
The plain coffee is the specialty here and only $2. Skip the espresso bar, but be sure to try the food. This location is often overlooked as a great spot for a healthy lunch.
New Orleans iced is the best thing ever.
Get the New Orleans iced coffee and write down your favorite roast.
Try the Latte
The New Orleans Style Iced Coffee is a most refreshing afternoon pick-me-up!
The New Orleans iced coffee with soy is epic, but the breakfast here is also amazing (poached eggs on toast). If you can't stay for breakfast, get the granola. Best ever.
We love Blue Bottle! YUM
Get their espresso. Nice ristretto pulls.
Order a SG-120.
Good coffee place near downtown SanFran
Get a siphon coffee!
NOLA iced coffee, you are a harsh mistress.
You haven't suffered enough for your coffee of you haven't waited at least 20 minutes.
In the mood for a lovely pick me up dessert/snack, especially on a warmer SF day? Get the affogatto - vanilla ice cream with espresso from Blue Bottle cannot be beat.
fun fact. Barista's refer to what they do as "pulling shots"
this place is THE SHIT. we all know about the coffee, but also tasty and well-priced breakfast food. one dish enough to share for a small snack. warning, the water glasses are more like shot glasses.
Try the tea, too!
What's all the activity on Sunday morning across the street? IKON is a community of people working together to change the world. We meet at Mezzanine at 11a. Stop in and see what we're up to!
I have dreams about the toast with jam and butter.
Go to Blue Bottle at least three time. First get a simple espresso, second get a coffee from the Japan imported $20,000 vacuum coffee machine, third get the Kyoto style ice coffee.
Show up between 11 and 1:30 to avoid the long lines
kyoto is always the answer.
Ask for the espresso to go!
holy hell, the ginger herbal tea is quite possibly the best ive EVER had.
Try the goat cheese frittata & New Orleans Iced Coffee!
The New Orleans iced coffee is great -- not too sweet, not too bitter.
The rice cake is gluten free and filling and yummy. Their drip coffee is what a cup o' joe should be.
Kyoto iced coffee, please.
The coffee justifies attitude. (or does it?)
